Book Review – Pegasus the Heart of the Harrier, the History & Development of the World’s First Operational Vertical Take-of & Landing Jet Engine



The Rolls Royce Pegasus was a jet engine revolution in a single product. It was even more important than the WWII Merlin engine. This book is an outstanding document, worthy of an outstanding subject. It is a tour de force with many fine photographs, sketches, drawings and tables and well worth every penny of the cover price, although with Pen & Sword there will also be some great special offers that will make this great book affordable to a much wider readership.

The author has done a really great job in producing a very readable account that will be appreciated by engineers, enthusiasts, historians and general readers.
